If the applicant will be hired by a Mexican company or institution and will receive their wages in Mexico, the company or institution must submit the application before the local office of the National Immigration Institute (INM) in Mexico,


 Once the applicant has this authorization, he/she needs to submit the following documents, in person:

  • One recent passport-sized photograph (4.5 CM X 3.5 CM), white background, without glasses. Face should cover 80% of the photo.
  • Visa fee ($40 US Dollars).


This is a single entry visa and will allow the applicants to enter to the country to exchange it for a Temporary Resident Card within 30 days upon their arrival at the nearest migration office (INM). The temporary resident card will be valid for one year and multiple entries.

Personal presence of the applicant is mandatory for biometric process and interview.

Having a Mexican visa gives the possibility to travel to the country, but the entry to Mexican territory is subject to the final decision of the Immigration and Health Authorities in the country.

The Consular Section may request further forms of proof depending on each case.
